Stirring Up the Past: Food & Family in the NEHGS Archives

Where: 99-101 Newbury St, Boston MA

When: October 3, 2012 6:00PM - 7:00PM

Description:

Archivist Judy Lucey will share items from the NEHGS collection that focus on the importance of traditions surrounding food and family, including recipe books, menus, photographs, and rare account books and diaries which were also used to record family recipes. These documents, dating from the 17th to the 20th century, have been carefully preserved over time, first by families and now by NEHGS, and were often just as treasured as a family bible or diary. Learn more about the treasures to be found in the NEHGS archives and the stories they tell.

 

Free and open to the public. Please RSVP to education@nehgs.org or 617-226-1226.
